With so many options available, choosing the right braces for you can seem like a daunting task. Dr. Truc Le and Dr. Alissa Nguyen of TruCare Dental can help you choose your braces in Garland, TX.

Traditional Metal Braces

Metal braces have been around for a long time and they remain a popular option in orthodontics. That's because they are effective at correcting dental defects.

Each metal bracket bound to the front of your teeth is linked by a thin archwire. Elastics secure the archwire.

During routine visits to your dentist at TruCare Dental, your dentist will tighten the archwire on your braces which gradually adjusts your teeth position.

Despite its popularity, some people find that the striking metallic color of metal braces attracts unwanted attention.

If you don't mind the striking color of metal braces, they're a great option. If you're feeling bold, you could choose colorful elastics to make your braces more exciting.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces share the same mode of operation as metal braces. However, unlike metal braces, they have translucent ceramic brackets.

Hence, ceramic braces seem to be the better choice for people who would prefer less noticeable orthodontic treatment.

The main downside to ceramic braces is that they're not as durable as metal braces. They also cost more than metal braces so, that's another thing to consider.

Lingual Braces

If you truly don't want anyone seeing your braces, you might love lingual braces.

They operate like your traditional braces. The major difference between them lies in their mode of installation.

If you're getting lingual braces in Garland, TX, your dentist will install them on the side of your teeth adjacent to your tongue.

That means no one can see your braces because your teeth hide them.

Lingual braces need the expert care of your dentist at TruCare Dental for their installation.

You would need to consider your budget because lingual braces cost more than traditional braces. They are also not fit for all dental problems so, a consultation with your dentist will tell if you'll benefit from lingual braces.
